"I thought I was on top of the world, and then all of a sudden I got diagnosed with MS. I was in Utah to film an episode for a TV show
with George Clooney.
My legs felt like they were on fire. My shins were on fire, my thighs were on fire, and it wouldn't stop, and that's what sent me into the doctor.
The doctor said you have MS. He said you have to stop your talk show, you're going to have to stop all the stress, you have to stop
all that working out and you're going to have to stop stop stop. I thought, how dare that doctor tell me what was in my crystal ball.
"I looked into the crystal ball. I almost did what a large percentage of people who have MS do, and that is to take my life.
I sat in a closet for about three hours sucking on a gun. I got very, very afraid that my children might find me so I decided to get a little smarter.
I walked across the street and there are cabs going around all the time in New York. If a cab hits me, everyone will think it happened
as an accident. So of course I'm in Manhattan, New York, I cross the street and throw myself in front of a cab, and I get the only cab
driver that's paying attention. He slammed on his brakes, picked me up and helped me across the street. And it was that second that made me realize
number one, how dare I live down to someone else's expectations of me. When that hit me, it hit me like a brick.
To think that I could not survive this after all the things I've survived
that you can't even imagine. How dare that man. And this guy that's helping me across the street talking in my ear about how much he enjoyed my show
and I realized right then that I don't care what any doctor says about me. I have MS. Yes. My MS will never have me.
"That day I got on my computer. I got three assistants on the computer. I said I want you to find out anything and everything that has anything to
do with MS. I found every doctor that claims to be an expert, and I literally went to meet them all. My lead doctor for MS was nominated for the
Nobel Peace Prize. I see doctors from Torrence. I see doctors from John Hopkins. I see doctors from University of San Francisco, and after a while
after seeing all these doctors, not that I want to put any of them down, but I'm just hearing about all the same issues I was dealing with.
"So what I decided to do was to start researching. Inflammation is kryptonite, kryptonite for most neurological diseases. I set about finding out
about everything and anything I could possibly take to reduce the inflammation in my body. Now this very good friend of mine said look, you're
looking at finding out more about something called anti-oxidants. I said really? It reduces the inflammation. I looked at the very first
study that came out. I take about 38 pills a day every day. My housekeeper put all of my pills together for me every month.
I took Protandim for two and a half years, literally every day. I take a lot of things.
I take western medication. I take a holistic program and a hormone replacement program because I feel very strongly that you need to have
every single weapon in your quiver you can have to go to war, and Protandim was one of those weapons in that quiver.
"This isn't a double-blind study, this isn't a clinical trial, I'm just going to tell you Montel. About 9 months ago I just didn't start feeling right.
Waking up in the morning my legs dragged a little bit more, they hurt me more. Five days go by, and I tried to figure out everything I could to find
out what it was that had changed in my life in the last month that was making me feel a little weird. I tried to figure it out. So I finally went to my
housekeeper and went, let me figure out what it is about my pills. I was thinking maybe she was just forgetting to put the magnesium or the vitamin D
in the bag or something. Something was wrong. I checked the bags, and I realized I hadn't ordered Protandim for three months. OK? Protandim was
the only pill that was missing out of my bag, she had stopped putting it in there for 20 days.
So if the only thing I changed in my life is Protandim, and that clearly started making me feel worse, and the second I put it back in
8 days later I started feeling like myself, this is a product I'm going to stand behind. This is a product that's about making people feel better."

"I have a secret. I have a secret Anti-Aging formula, and it's a company called LifeVantage. They came up with a product called Protandim.
Now what causes the aging process is free radicals in our body, oxidative stress. This Protandim stuff, I've been taking it for two years.
It's clinically proven to slow the aging process down. It reduces the oxidative stress by 40% in 30 days. I said whatever, you know?
So I tested it, and it works. And the nice thing, it's not pharmacuetical. It's real food. It works for me. I'm 94 years old."
"I'll always be grateful that I was introduced to Protandim. My doctor, Dr. Randall Royal studied it. He ran tests. He verified it yet again
on me, that Protandim does exactly what it's supposed to do. Thanks to Protandim I know that I'm doing all that I can do to fight the affects of
aging. And oxidative stress from the inside and doing it naturally helps my genes do what they are already programmed to do.
Protandim. I think it's fantastic.
"I think it's the closest thing to the fountain of youth. I have a secret and I've never really talked about it. I've been doing this for two years.
It's called Protandim, and it works. Now I'm telling everyone about this."

"I'd been a PMS sufferer for over 10 years. For me that meant 4 or 5 days every month before my period.
I would just be kind of a crazy person. I would suddenly be extremely moody. I would get into fights with people.
I would feel like I was risking my job because I just wasn't as clear headed or level or sane as I needed to be.
My household was not too happy having to go through this with me every month, and I was basically desperate to try anything.
I took B vitamins. I took various herbal remedies that they prescribed. I cut my sugar and my caffeine, and I just wasn't
seeing a lot of results. So I just kind of resolved myself to live with it.
"I started taking Protandim, and I didn't really expect that I would see immediate results, but I did.
A month into taking Protandim - no PMS. It was just gone. That was just like a miracle to me.
I have been taking it for several months now, and it hasn't come back. I'm basically now an ex-PMS sufferer.
I can't tell you how happy that makes me, and how wonderful it is just to live a normal live and not plan my
vacations and anything else in my life around my menstrual cycle. It's just amazing."
"I suffered from ADD, Joint Pain and Skin Cancer.
I had real achy joints from teaching aerobics for so many years, and after just a few weeks of using Protandim, that subsided
immediately. I was also using some anxiety medication for my ADD, and I noticed all my symptoms from anxiety started going away. So my
doctor weened me off that medication. I feel very calm, very focused.
"I no longer struggle with ADD, and joint pain is gone,
but the most profound thing that happened to me is that I struggled and suffered with skin cancer for years. That was due to
being a sun worshipper with a light complexion and being in tanning booths for years and being in the sun for years.
I had suffered major skin damage. I have had several surgeries removing skin cancer. In fact my entire top lip was cut off due to
skin cancer. Over the years I've also had a total of ten different surgeries of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma spots removed
from my chest.
"Then two more spots appeared on my forehead that my doctor said needed to be removed and one more spot on my leg.
I wanted to wait to have this surgery done because number one, obviously it's expensive, and it causes different scars and such,
and then you have to have other treatments to remove that. I started taking Protandim and TrueScience. After six weeks of using
Protandim and TrueScience the two spots on my forehead completely disappeared, and the spot on my leg completely disappeared as well.
So my symptoms of skin cancer are totally gone. It's been a miraculous thing for me."
"Thirteen years ago I was diagnosed with a condition called Subglottic Stenosis which is scarring of the trachea.
I went into emergency surgery up in Salt Lake City, and they dilated my airway, and then I was told it would probably grow back.
Sure enough, three years later it did, and I ended up in the emergency room once again. I went in, and they did a laser treatment,
and then a little bit later within a few weeks it grew back. They did it again and then again and then again and then again.
Then I ended up in the emergency room and after the surgery was performed I went into respiratory failure.
Due to that I ended up with a tracheostomy and a regular stainless steel trach. I then had multiple surgeries and they were not able
to prevent the scar tissue from growing. So then they did a rib graft, and they took part of my rib out, and they put that in my airway.
That didn't work. Then I went to UCLA, and they took the membranes of my cheeks and they sliced them from both sides of my face and put them in
my airway. That didn't work. Then they inserted what is called a t-tube. It fitted under my vocal cords, came out of my neck and was capped in
the front. For the past 9 years I have had a t-tube in my airway that was replaced every year. I've had a total of over 41 surgeries on my airway.
"I started on Protandim and in April of 2011 I went to my doctor at the Mayo, and we decided to do surgery and take the t-tube out.
He was reluctant and didn't think it would work, but then they took it out. When I woke up I felt to see whether or not I had the t-tube
in my airway or a plug. And I had a plug. He had told me if it was successful, he would put a plug in my airway for 4 months to see
if the scar tissue would return. Now I've had scar tissue grow back within 3 to 5 days, and after 4 months - it didn't.
And so on August 23rd of 2011 my airway was sewn up. This is a pretty big deal to me because for the first time in 10 years
I went swimming, and I was able to take a shower without gurgling. During this process of the last 9 years I had a year when I couldn't speak.
The fact that I'm able to speak today and speak with intonation and emotion is due to the blessing that I have been given.
And I am grateful. Protandim has truly been a miracle in my life."

"I was diagnosed as a type two Diabetic about 4 years ago. Up until 2009 I had steadily increased my diabetic oral medications
until I was at the point where I was going to have to go insulin dependent if I did not get my glucose levels and A1C test levels
under control. I had essentially maxed out oral medication options. About that time my chiropractor became aware I was a diabetic,
and he told me about an all natural supplement that was technically an anti-aging supplement, but that he had been hearing some amazing success
stories about benefits it was bringing to both insulin and non-insulin dependent diabetics. The product was Protandim, and it was
from a company called LifeVantage. I did a lot of research on the supplement and decided I would give it a try.
"When I was diagnosed with diabetes about 4 years ago my A1C score was 13.2. Considering you want your your A1C test to be below 7 this was
pretty bad. Through oral drugs I was able to get the A1C down but I was still struggling to get below that 7 mark.
In October of 2009 I was still at an unacceptable 8.9 when I started taking Protandim.
Then in April of 2010 my test lowered to 7.3 and then in October of 2010 I finally got below 7 to 6.8.
In June of 2010 I also was able to start reducing my oral medications.
This is a big win for a diabetic.
"There are actually two big side stories to this that are worth telling.
In addition to being a diabetic I have always had high cholesterol levels.
In April 2010 my total cholesterol was at 225 and bad cholesterol or LDL was at 159.
By October of 2010 my total cholesterol had gone down to a
very acceptable 138 and my bad cholesterol had gone down to a
respectable 77. This is a thirty nine percent reduction in total cholesterol and a fifty two percent reduction
in bad cholesterol.
"The second side story to my success with Protandim is that I had a fairly severe pain in both of my shoulders
due to sports injuries and arthritis. About three months before I started taking Protandim I essentially flipped the coin
and decided to have my left shoulder operated on first to fix the injuries and to remove arthritis from the joint.
I figured I would have my right shoulder done about a year later which would be about some time like now.
After taking Protandim for about 3 months I started to notice that I was having a reduction in pain from my right shoulder,
the one that had not been surgically repaired. Now after taking Protandim for almost a year I noticed about an 80 to 90 percent reduction in pain
from my right shoulder. At this point I have no plans to proceed with the previously planned surgery to repair it.
Obviously I'm very happy with the Protandim product.
You can see how it has made a material and positive change in my personal life."
Type Two Diabetic
"Over the years I have suffered from four Ruptured Discs, one failed back surgery, aching joints, fingers, wrists, elbows, knees, everything,
and on a scale of 1-10, most days I was at a 3-6 pain level. My knees hurt so bad that I walked down the stairs sideways one foot at a time
holding onto the railing. I spent a lot of time working from bed. I only slept 3.5 to 4 hours a night. I felt like I was in a fog.
With poor eyesight I wear glasses. The army said I was legally blind.
"My chiropractor asked me to try Protandim. He didn't tell me a whole lot about it except the science behind it at first,
and he didn't tell me what to expect. He just said he wanted to see what would happen.
I started taking it. Five days later I woke up to find I had slept nine and a half hours. It was the first time I had done that in a long time.
I woke up feeling pretty refreshed. Normally I wake up spending hours in a fog. That was just amazing to me. On day eleven I noticed my knuckles
weren't swollen and red any more, and my hands didn't hurt, and I noticed that my knees hadn't been hurting like they used to, and my elbows
"On day 31 I found that I was sleeping seven and a half hours a night. When I wake up I don't feel like I'm in a fog. I feel great.
All during the day things seem to be clearer. A wrist that I broke when I was 14 years old used to pop and crack and snap.
Well, it doesn't make a sound anymore, and it doesn't hurt to move it.
On day 36 I noticed that I had dropped a few pounds. When I started off I was 195 pounds. On day 36 I was at 182. I am 6 foot tall. The 182
put me right in the center of the BMI for normal weight, where before I was overweight.
I think I had been in a bit of depression also. On day 36 I noticed also things were brighter, I feel better, and I'm positive I was in a
depression before. My joints no longer hurt and ache. I can walk up the stairs just fine. My pain level was a 3 to a 6 every day.
Now it's a 0 or a one. I feel fantastic. I haven't felt this good for years.
"On day 42 I noticed that my skin is softer. The backs of my hands don't have the old age wrinkles like I used to. On day 56 I was driving home late
at night and noticed that headlights weren't bothering me. I have pretty bad astigmatism, and that is what my doctor said gave me the problem
of seeing stars and halos around headlights at night. Then looking back at the road it was hard to refocus on what was ahead of me. So I didn't
drive at night usually. That night the headlights looked clear so it was much easier to drive at night. My vision is clearer, especially at night."

"Eight years ago I was diagnosed with aggressive Prostate Cancer. It was already in stage 4, and I needed surgery immediately.
After the surgery I went home. In a couple of weeks my appendix ruptured. I had to have an appendectomy, and they left my
abdomen open for 3 weeks. I went home, and the following day I had a heart attack. I had to go back in the hospital, and
they put a stent in my heart. A couple of weeks after that they had to do some work on my right leg muscle because of
problems they had with the appendectomy. After the surgery they did a colonoscopy, and I was diagnosed with colon cancer.
They removed my entire colon. I got a staff infection and stayed in the hospital two and a half months.
I went home with a colostomy, and that didn't work. It wouldn't stay attached. So they came up with an experimental procedure called a
j-pouch. They use your intestine to make an internal pouch. They failed to tell me that I would have diarrhea the rest of my life.
On good days I would go 8 to 14 times a day. On bad days it could be 15 to 30 times a day. I had 20 bad days a month and 10 good days.
In order to try to control the diarrhea they put me on steroids and codeine. As your body acclimates itself to the drugs they
had to continue to raise the dosage. It really never worked. After 6 months they put me on a chemo drug to control the diarrhea
and to keep the bacteria out and to keep cancer from that pouch. I stayed on the chemo drug for six and a half years.
With the side affects from the steroids, codeine and other medication I had to take, I wound up with a lot of joint problems.
I had to have both my elbows redone. I just recently had back surgery because it deteriorated the disk in my back.
Plus it was killing my heart.
During that whole time over the last six and a half years I wound up getting fifty one procedures done just to try to control
what was going on because of the steroids and other heavy medication.
"A couple of years ago they brought me in. I had numerous heart attacks. They wound up putting in 5 stents and 4 balloons
because my arteries were getting clogged up. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't take a bath without having to do it in two stages.
I didn't have the strength or the breath it took to take a shower all at one time. Things progressively got worse.
In December I was diagnosed with diastolic heart failure. They told me I was getting fibrosis of the heart.
My heart would compress but it didn't have the strength to pump the blood back out to my lungs and my brain.
I was having migraines and chest pains so bad that I was taking two and three nitroglycerine pills at a time
because of the chest pain. The doctor said they couldn't do anything. My blood pressure was 95 to 100 plus over
150 to 160. It was really bad. In March they told me the diarrhea was getting uncontrollable. I couldn't eat any
food other than heavy starch. I'm a diabetic. I was using three insulin bottles a month because of the food I had to eat
and the steriods I was taking. My meter wouldn't even read my blood glucose level. The meter reads up to 600. Your normal
glucose level should be between 70 and 120, and all my meter would show was high. I couldn't eat any decent food without having
heavy abdominal pains and heavy diarrhea. I didn't sleep more than an hour or so a night at one time before having to go to the
bathroom. There was no quality of life whatsoever. I was about at the end of my rope, and they were going to remove the internal pouch
and go back with the colostomy which is something I didn't want.
"Then someone brought me a DVD showing the effects of Protandim. I had never heard of it, and I really didn't want to take another pill,
but after a couple of weeks of that DVD sitting in my kitchen I decided to watch the video. Once I watched it I researched
more on the computer and I decided that night I was going to take it. The next day I called a distributor, ordered a bottle, and he
gave me some to take while my order came in. I started taking Protandim the beginning of April, and within two weeks
the abdominal pain ceased. I had no more abdominal pain. The diarrhea was cut more than half. I started backing off the
steroids and codeine pills. Within three weeks I was completely off the steroids and codeine, and I had no abdominal pain,
no diarrhea and no chest pains.
"The Protandim, what it did for my body, got rid of all the poisonous radicals I had in my body. I was taking some 39 pills
every day, and now I take one Protandim, a fish oil pill and one blood pressure medication where I was taking three before.
And I have no problem. My blood work came back. After 3 months I had blood work done. My A1C dropped from 9.2 to 7.1.
The first 3 months I was on Protandim my insulin intake dropped by two-thirds. Instead of taking 3 bottles of insulin a month
I'm down to 1 bottle. During the time I was taking my medication alonside the Protandim I had no side effects whatsoever.
I still don't have any side effects. I take it every day. I will continue taking it every day. Since that time I've been
trying to get everyone I knew to start taking this product because of the results it has done for me.
I want to get the word out to everyone I know and to everyone that's sick that has any kind of problems
that this product is truly one of the best products that I have ever taken, and I hope that this message will get to
someone who needs it, even if I can save one person from going through what I went through. I got off my chemo 2 weeks ago,
and when they had put me on that drug they told me that as long as I wanted to live I had to stay on it. Two weeks ago
they told me I was clear, I no longer needed it."
"When you workout more you're creating a lot more oxidative stress, especially when you're lifting heavy. You're creating
more oxidative stress which means your body is not recovering. Your body is taking it's toll as you go along.
Whenever you're working out, if you're running, if you're weight lifting, you're metabolizing more. Your body is creating more cells,
and those cells are creating more oxidative stress. When you heal you're getting stronger, not when you're lifting.
Protandim is reducing that oxidative stress. It's making your body healthier, it's making your body better.
"Protandim cuts my time down in between sets. The older I've been getting, the longer I have to wait in between sets.
Since I've been taking the stuff I can wait a minute or less and go back and do another one. It's a lot faster in between so
I'm getting a lot better workout. My joints were going way down real fast. I don't have that problem any more.
If you watched me about 6 months ago, I would have an arm band on here when I benched, and I don't have to do that no more.
My knees have torn ligaments in both, and when I'd go to squat it would be just a nightmare. It's not like that no more.
I love squatting. I was taking it about two and a half weeks when I noticed my joints were feeling better, and after about a month
they were just one hundred percent better."

"I'm a retired orthopaedic surgeon. I've been using Protandim for two months. Before I started I double checked the research
that's available from the company. I looked at it and satisfied myself and started taking it, and I've not been disappointed at all.
I find that the stiffness in my neck is gone. I can turn and back my car like I usually do without looking in the mirrors.
My arthritic symptoms in my thumbs and my knees and my lower back have disappeared. And my wife, praise to God, has the same loss
of symptoms in her knees, and we both now walk two miles a day, and we're walking quickly. We're able to walk just as quickly as
we started when we finish. So I'm more than pleasantly satisfied with Protandim and it's results.
"The science showed me that with what I think is something like 28 or 29 research universities of which 8 have published papers,
universities and medical schools have published papers on various aspects of Protandim and certain diseases like skin cancers and
duchenne's neurological problems and many others, cardiovascular problems. These research papers are just very positive and all the
universities to my knowledge have paid for their own research. They have not been supported by the manufacturer. Then there's the
many, many awards that Dr. McCord, the discoverer who put it all together and researched it has obtained, how he has been awarded
and how he has been recognized in the field of free radical biology. That is a very small field I might add but it's growing.
I didn't find any glitches or anything I could hang my hat on that was a negative at all. So I'm saying that I've been uniquely blessed
with this product."
Richard Pentecost, MD
"I was introduced to Protandim about 7 or 8 weeks ago because I have Multiple Sclerosis. I was on 5 different medications
that helped me get through my day with MS. One was Phentermine to keep me awake, plus Ambien to put me to sleep at night,
Cymbalta for neuropathic pain, my blood pressure medicine and Tizanidine which is a muscle relaxer. All of these medicines
were every day including 3 shots a week for anti-inflammatory reasons. In several weeks time I have weaned myself off of
every medication. My energy levels are up, and I'm feeling wonderful, and I am pain free which is the most amazing thing
for me. I am a believer. I thought if it could just give me some energy, which is what I expected it to do. I never, ever
expected everything else that came with it. Thank you. Thank you very much."
"I have suffered from severe Eczema for about thirty years. I have been an Eczema sufferer since I was
7 or 8 years old. I've had Eczema on my hands. I've had difficulty holding a pencil, holding a pen, writing, washing my hands, you name it.
Those of you who are Eczema sufferers know what I'm talking about. It's very painful, it's very uncomfortable, and it's quite embarrassing.
I have had it quite under control in the last ten years through various means, but I do still get flare ups.
In the past 20 days of taking Protandim I have experienced the complete disappearance of my Eczema. In the last 3 weeks I've had
quite possibly the softest skin on my hands that I've ever had. So I'm right now contributing that to Protandim."
Jan has issues with her memory. There were problems with her Dementia and Alzheimers. Her daughter had been bringing her to a doctor.
Now that she is on Protandim she is doing great. She's been out to the movies, she went out with her friends, and things are going pretty well.
"Yes, very well." And her memory is coming back. "Yes, I have my little moments, but it's not nearly so bad. I'm making real progress."
Since that time Jan has seen other improvements. Jan used to have a cane. "Now the cane is at home in the closet."
Jan had a hard time moving around. She had a cane, and now that's all gotten better too. "That's all better. Yes."
"In 1998 I was diagnosed with a Prolactin Pituitary Tumor which I no longer have, thank you to Protandim.
My daughter was born in 1991. If anyone is familiar with prolactin, it's the milk in your breasts, and it never dried up.
It never went away. So from 1991 until 1998, for 7 years I would go back to my gynecologist miserable, miserable.
My body felt like it was in a tug of war with this. My hormones were fighting against each other. I have never been a larger person,
and by the time I was diagnosed I was on my way to a size 16. Now I'm a size 8. That was my normal size. My patience was nil. My poor children.
I would warn them that my nerves were just nil. My mood swings were awful. My body felt like I was going through menopause
and being pregnant at the same time. For 7 years my body was in turmoil. Miserable was a nice word considering what my body was going through.
Finally my prolactin levels were getting higher in their 60s, in their 70s, in their 90s, and my gynecologist kept telling me when it becomes 100
it's when you have a tumor. He was warning me, thinking that that's where I was heading. But in black and white book terms for a gynecologist
I have to wait until my prolactin level is 100. So it hit 111. Seven years later. It took me that long. So he sent me to an endocrinologist.
"My first endocrinologist was a joke, sorry to say. He was on the verge of retiring and didn't want to take the time for his patients.
He put me on Bromocriptine. Now back then I had very long hair. It was to my mid-back, and within the month that I went on Bromocriptine
which I had to take every day, the side effects were, my hair fell out to where it was just shoulder length. I lost so much weight I was
down to a size 4. By this time I was diagnosed with one Pituitary Tumor in one of my lobes. So taking the medication, the side effects were
awful. Fatique set in. You get chronic fatique where you literally want to become a couch potato. You want to get up and move, but your body
is just not functioning. You can't. I was a massage therapist at the time, and the only thing that kept me going is taht I was also working
with a nutritionist. Even though it's a non-cancerous tumor, she treated it like it was cancer and put me on foods I should be on.
It was not bad enough that I would need brain surgery thank God. So three months into this misery and the weight loss and the hair loss
and I mean chunks of hair coming out in the shower. People would come up to me and ask me if I had a disease and if I was dying.
I looked that bad.
"I went back to the doctor and asked if there was another medication. He told me no. But there was, I came to find out later. Anyway 6 months into
this he had me do another MRI in which my tumor was dissolved because that's what the medication is for. It dissolved my tumor.
So he said OK you can go off of it. This was in November of 98. So I weaned myself off the medication, and by January I could tell it was back.
I had the same symptoms as before. For a whole year I worked with a homeopathy doctor, and it didn't get me anywhere. It helped with other things,
but it didn't get me anywhere as far as my tumor was concerned. So I found the Pituitary Tumor Network Association online, printed out their pamphlet
and called them, and asked if they had any doctors to recommend in California. They recommended a doctor in UCSF in San Francisco. So I went
there, had another MRI, bone density scan and a lot of bloodwork, and by this time I had two tumors in my pituitary gland.
"So this doctor, who I begged not to put me on the medication informed me that there was other medication that had been out for three years.
I begged this doctor not to put me on the medication, but because he said my bone density was below normal he said I have to go on the medication.
Because when you don't have your monthly cycle it takes the bone density out of your system. So I went on the medication. It was called
Dostinex. On this medication there is much less side effects. There is like ten issues that come up, and I had nine out of ten.
I couldn't tell you all of them, but one is IBS with chronic abdominal pain, cramping, discomfort and bloating. It also cause hair loss, and your system
doesn't work well. Your nails don't grow. Your hair doesn't grow back. Your skin doesn't look good when you're on this medication, and you
don't have your monthly cycles. Not only was I on the Dostinex, I was also on Lunesta to help me sleep becasue it caused chronic fatique,
and even with that I had only 5 hours of sleep. I was also on Prilosec for my stomach, and also on birth control to help me maintain my monthly
cycle that I should be doing. On top of all that this all had to be regulated. It was a struggle. It was a lifetime struggle I didn't ask for.
My family had to deal with it. That medication alone cost over $800 a month. That's not including the other medications I was on either.
Finally I was able to maintain a semi-normal life and help my children grow up. I have three children. They're all adults now, and I have a
"Just recently my niece called me on the phone and said she had something she wanted me to try. It took her months to convince me.
So I finally agreed and did two and a half hours of research on Protandim. I could not find anything wrong with it, not one thing.
So I started taking it in August. By the end of December I started getting back pain. In February I woke up with my face and hands so swollen
that I was unrecognizable. My eyes were swollen shut. My lips looked like I had collagen put in. My nose was swollen to three times it's size.
I knew that was a side effect of my medication, so I immediately called my gynecologist.
She sent me on an appointment to an endocrinologist becasue I didn't have one anymore. I was maintaining, and my gynecologist
was keeping it under control with various MRIs and blood work to make sure I was maintaining a proper level with my pituitary.
I was taking the pill Sunday nights and Wednesday nights. I was still waking up swelling on Thursday morning.
So I cut back to one pill, and I was still waking up swelling. So I decided to cut back to half of a pill, and I was still waking up swelling.
What I decided on March 15th is I'm done with this. I'm not taking the medication anymore. I hadn't been able to get in to the
endocrinologist yet. I had my appointment on April 15th so I went in to see her and talked to her, and that month I was off the medication
I felt fine. I felt wonderful. And I was still taking the Protandim. I never stopped.
"So the endocrinologist put me through a series of MRI, bone density and blood work. Everything came back to where I was in really good shape.
My bone density was still a little below normal because it takes a while to build that up after 12 years that I was on medication.
The endocrinologist told me I would have to be on it the rest of my life, and that is what I would have to deal with.
Well after I was off the medication I was feeling wonderful. All the tests came back great. The medication stays in your system, so I've been
put on a detox for 30 days. So far I've been on it for a week, and already I've lost 5 pounds. It's changed me so much that I recently
was at a family wedding, and my family was trying to accuse me of having facial work done, because I looked different. I looked
healthier. I looked much younger apparently than before. My husband said, no she's had no work. She's still the age she is.
Everything's fine. I feel wonderful. I attribute it to Protandim, because that is the only thing I have done different. The only thing.
Like they say, it helps fight free radicals, and it's what your body does with it after that is what your body chooses to do.
Well, my body chose to heal itself."
"Since using Protandim I've found that I'm less painful. I had problems with Arthritis in my fingers, and I have less of the almost stinging
pain that I had in there. My lower back is much improved, and I've found with my work out I don't have the pains right afterwards.
I don't wake up so stiff I can't move. I actually get to move and enjoy my life. I'd say I feel pretty even keeled.
My husband feels the same way. He's noticed that he's feeling less pain, and he's feeling more comfortable generally.
He's a doctor."
"I'd like to talk to you about Protandim and Depression. When I first started Protandim I had an amazing breakthrough with my health.
Since taking it I'm a lot more optimistic.
My moods aren't down at all. No depression, no low, no moments you feel of drudgery. No struggling with feeling optimistic, that kind of thing.
I've been sleeping really well. Really well actually. No pain. I used to wake up in the morning in pain, and I had to get up at 3 or 4 in the morning
or I just couldn't do it. Well, no more of that. I usually sleep great.
My eyesight has improved. I've quit wearing my glasses.
My eyes are fantastic. My eyesight continues to improve. I haven't worn my glasses since I started, my prescription reading glasses.
There have been a number of other things I've noticed. My memory has been improving pretty substantially. My recall.
I highly recommend it. This is an incredible product. It has changed my life and impacted my life every day.
I get up in the morning. I feel refreshed. I feel optimistic. And I'm ready to go."
"I've taken Protandim for about three and a half months. Prior to that I had debilitating PMS. I had perimenopausal symptoms,
hot flashes, night sweats and my hair was falling out. I would take a shower and handfuls of my hair would fall out.
After about two months of taking Protandim my PMS symptoms were completely gone, and I haven't had any hot flashes or night sweats.
My hair is not only not falling out, it's growing like crazy. My hair and my nails are growing twice as fast as they were before.
I'm sleeping all the way through the night, and I have more energy than I've ever had, and I'm in my forties."
"Many years I've had Arthritis in my hands. They were so bad I couldn't force my fingers down. I couldn't do anything with them.
They were sore all the time. In about 4 weeks taking Protandim, I can now make a fist. No pain, it's gone.
I'm feeling real good. I've had a lot of other experiences with Protandim. In April I went to the doctor for my annual physical.
I went to have my lab work done. So I waited to find out what the results of that was. When the doctor come in he was just shaking
"He said, Harold, I don't know what I'm going to do with you. He says we just got the lab work back, and according to the lab
your kidneys are functioning the same as an 18 or 19 year old. For an 81 year old man that's quite a difference there.
He said your liver and all your organs inside are just like a young man. I said doctor, you know what's causing that don't you?
He said after reading the material about Protandim, it's got to be that. He said nothing else I know of could slow down the aging process
in a person like this has done for you. So it's just amazing, and I'll tell you I'm going to stay on it for the rest of my life."
Amanda Jackson has been suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) since 2008 when she was diagnosed at 25 years old.
Before Amanda became ill she was a cosmetologist, and a bank teller.
She has not been able to move any part of her body for the past two and one half years.
Her mother started giving her daughter Protandim on May 27th, 2012 and just after 4 days saw movement in her right leg.
Thanks to Protandim she can now move her body significantly after taking Protandim for 28 days.
"I had an Inguinal Hernia which comes from exercising without warming up and jumping up the stairs. It expands and comes out like a balloon.
Usually they do surgery and put some kind of mesh there, but not everyone has 11 or 12 thousand dollars so I've started taking Protandim.
So far so good. I'm at about 75% improvement because I'm still a little bit worried about going into the gym right now. Apparantly I tore
it pretty good. I waited 8 months before I revealed I had problems. So yes, it seems to be working. Yeah well, it is working.
I'm a lot stronger. Now I feel I can go to the gym. It's either working or it's not. So now I'm going back to the gym, and we'll see how that goes.
"I'm the mother of a four and a half year old who is diagnosed with high functioning Autism since he was two years old.
So for the last two and a half years we've been in and out of different therapies that have been trying to get him past certain hurdles
that he has been trying to get over. A couple of those hurdles are things like speech and social skills, learning how to play with others,
learning how to ask for things that he wants or needs, and just very simple day to day things that normal people do to live.
The therapies in the past have worked. We've done speech therapy, we've done a lot of behavioral therapy. We're still doing all those things.
With the one thing that I've noticed though in the last couple of months or so he's really skyrocketed in terms of how he has progressed
from the way he used to be to how he is now, more like a normal four and a half year old child would be.
"The one thing that I've seen that is different is that we have been having him on the Protandim for the last eight weeks.
One of the biggest things that I am really appreciative about is that I've noticed that his level of progression over the last eight weeks
has been far greater than in any 8 week period that I can remember. Just putting him on that Protandim over the last couple of months
has really made a hugh impact on him. I've seen him want to initiate play with other kids. I've seen him come up to me and ask
questions, and ask for things that he wants and he is taliking in complete sentences when he has never done that before.
It's just amazing to me because I have never seen a progression that fast in him. It's been absolutely amazing for him.
I'm so thankful the doctor gave him the Protandim, and we're life long addicts now."
Mother of Autistic Boy
"I suffered from severe Migraines for 25 years. When I was 19 years old, I was in a head on car collision going 55 miles per hour.
This guy decided to cut across the highway.
Then he stopped when he saw me, and I plowed right into him. Then I started to have migraines. Full blown aura, lose your eyesight,
nausea, the whole thing migraines. I'm 44 years old, so don't work your brain trying to figure out how long I've suffered. Do the math.
In the last 12 years they've gotten progressively worse. They've been 3 to 5 a week that I've had, and in between those migraines
I've had a headache. There has never been a time when I haven't had something going on with my head. I husband and I are always on
the alert for things that will help. I'm very open minded and looking for something. We have six children, and so it makes it very
difficult when you're on drugs, your medicated. You're trying to get rid of a migraine, and your kids are asking for something. I just
tend to say, yeah, sure, burn the house down whatever. Go ahead. So I've tried chiropractic, lots of different chiropractors, tons and tons.
Holistic, drugs, life therapy, oxygen therapy, water therapy, sleep therapy, anti-depressants, anti-seizure medications, the whole gamut.
You name it, I've tried it. Acupuncture, patches, and stuff you rub on your head. I did a botox study for a year and a half, and let them
shoot botox all over my body. Nothing ever helped.
"Finally someone said, try this. It might help your wife. Well, we got Protandim in the middle of December, and I started taking it.
I personally, to tell you the truth, I didn't think it would help my migraines. From watching the video I didn't get the idea that, oh this
will help my migraines. I thought, well maybe I'll look younger. Because all the medication and everything was just making me tired.
I felt aged, and I felt really worn out. So I took it because I thought I would get a benefit from that. Well, two and a half weeks later,
I stopped having headaches. And I stopped having migraines. I have not had a headache or a migraine since January 2nd, 2010."
"I just recently started on Protandim. I take lots of things that help me stay strong
and increase my energy. Well, since taking Protandim, I have more energy, and I already had
a lot of energy. I play high competition tennis, I have grandkids, and I'm always out doing lots of activities.
I have dogs and other interests. Well, I usually had this 11:00 slump. I've had none of that any more.
I have no slump at 3. I feel stable throughout the day, and it has helped my sports performance incredibly.
Protandim has actually passed the Olympics and the National Pro Football League as a natural sports enhancing
substance that is now allowed for use by athletes. It's not banned, so it's kind of exciting. It's been
wonderful, and it's only been a few days."
"I'm taking Protandim because I want to be healthy and happy. I've noticed that I have a lot more energy, and my joints.
I'd say they feel about sixty percent better. I didn't have real serious joint issues, but I'm 54. When I stand up and start
to walk, I'm a little bit creaky. I've definately noticed improvement there."
"I just started on Protandim. I've already been on a good diet and take a lot of good nutrients.
Since taking Protandim I've experienced better memory and clarity. I've noticed that I'm more alert
and have better mental clarity and better concentration. Absolutely."

"I'm using Protandim to enhance performance. I work out in the gym. In the last couple of weeks I've been noticing a couple of
great things happening for me. Recovery, excellent recovery, and I'm just now starting to get back into running so I noticed there's
a little more freedom in running, but the big thing so far has been strength. I've gained a lot of stength, perhaps 15 or 20 percent.
That's exceptional. Now I've lifted weights before. I've trained very heavily before. I normally do dead lifts and squats and things of
that nature that is well up there, and recovery in the leg exercises is really great at this point."
"I suffer from Parkinsons Disease. It's been 20 days since I started taking Protandim.
I'm feeling great, and I've seen major improvement in the movement of my left arm. My Parkinsons symptoms are improving, and I'm feeling better.
My arm movement is now really fluid. I haven't had any big improvements in the tremors yet,
but I think that's already a little better. Overall I'm feeling better, although I'm still having the tremors. I've been able to start exercising,
trying to do twice a day for 15 minutes. I've been sleeping better, feeling better, having more energy, and I'm really excited about this
especially. About how my arm movement has improved so greatly, because it's helpful for life."
"I am a five time Cancer Survivor.
One of the real pleasures after taking Protandim for a year is the number of other medications I no longer need.
I've cut my allergy medicine especially, a great deal. I'd say two-thirds of the things I was supposed to take before,
I'm no longer taking after talking with my physicians and having their approval. One month after taking Protandim I had my annual physical,
and my internist found my blood work outstanding. Especially in the area of cholesterol. Apparently it was very much improved from
prior times. All of the other blood work was in perfect balance, so I appreciate it so much having physical proof that my good health
was returning. It gave me my energy and stamina back.
"Within two months of being on it, at the oncologist's, the doctor said I looked so good that he was not going to go on with the chemo medicines
that he was giving me, and that he would see me in six months. The next physician I saw was my eye doctor. She said, you don't need to change
your glasses this time. Your eyes are holding so well. So it was the first time in a long time that I didn't have to have a new prescription.
The next doctor I saw was my heart doctor.
"My heart doctor felt that I was doing very well, and he was very interested in knowing what
I was doing to remain that way. The dentist found that my gums were in great shape, and my teeth were not having any troubles with cavities
at all. He was very pleased with the work that my mouth showed, even my tongue. I was having no more infections of any kind that where
making it difficult in my mouth. So my mouth was in good shape. I thank God every day that I have begun to take Protandim."
